Hello house friends!  

It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's a designer's choice challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  It's Donna's turn to give us the challenge and she wants us to make anything but a card.  

I love to give books as gifts at Christmas so this year I've made some bookmarks using lots of Repeat Impressions Stamps. These are the stamps I used #4603-F "Got Snow" , # 8914-E Snowflake Solid, 8916-F "Snowflake Outline", 8805-K "Snow Flakes"#8808-E "Knit Cap Penguin (sm), #2012-H Poinsettia, #4715-K "Snow Light", and 2714-D "Small Pine Forest".  This was such a fun project and I hope you'll be inspired to play along with Donna's challenge.  

I used an old banner/tag nesting die I've had for'evah and used it to cut card stock bases, then using the next layer die, I cut various design papers and sewed them to the cs base.  What doesn't show, I covered the backs with other designer papers in order to cover the stitching and make the bookmarks look finished.  Pieces of ribbon and trim were added to the bookmarks. Lots of scraps were used up making these, how great is that?  

You don't need dies to create bookmarks. Get creative and join the anything but a card challenge this week at THE HOUSE.  Entering is easy, just check out the details and play along!  

For more incredible ideas and inspiration, check out my team mates...they so rock.  

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello everyone!  

I'm here with a new Christmas card using the gorgeous stamp "Holly Bird" from Technique Junkies Stamps.  

Using my MISTI, the image was stamped with Clair Ink  and colored the image with Chameleon ColorTone Pencils.  Copic Markers were used to color the background and add highlight around the image.  After die cutting the panel I adhered it to a light blue card base layer, then onto the card card base.  For a final touch of texture, Liquid Pearls in Ruby Red was added to the berries.  

The sentiment is from the "Gifts of Christmas set of 5".  

I hope you found some inspiration while you were visiting today.  If you'd like to purchase the stamps used here, please feel free to grab my discount coupon (TJ10Cheri) for a full 10% off your entire purchase.
